Sponsored by Senator Carrell, SB 5401 states that the department may collect overpayments from a vendor or from a vendor’s successor when it has established a vendor overpayment as a final debt, including when it has done so on behalf of the Department of Early Learning or the Health Care Authority. “Successor” is defined as a person or entity that receives or purchases all or part of the business or property of another person or entity where there is an agreement for the transferee to assume liability, the transfer is a de facto merger or consolidation, the transferee is a mere continuation of the transferor, or the transfer of assets is for the fraudulent purpose of escaping liability.
